No, this is a completely false rumour.
I would only recommend applying for one if you are really confident that you did well, and you only need a 0.5 band improvement in speakingorwriting.
No, the question will always ask you toselectkey points. There is usually too much data for a 150-word essay. Also, your ability to select key data will impress the examiner.
You probably won't eliminate it, but I think it's possible to take control of the influence of your mother tongue by getting to know the differences that cause you problems. For example, some students say "before two weeks" instead of "two weeks ago"; this mistake is caused by interference from the students' first language. If you are aware of this problem, you can avoid it in future.
Yes, it's fine. Try not to say "you know" too many times, but it's nothing to worry about if you say it a few times. The important thing is the real content of your answers.
No, that isn't normal. While I usually tell students to ignore what the examiner does (e.g. checking his/her watch or making notes), I think in this case your examiner's behaviour was wrong. Maybe you should report the issue to your test centre.
In part 1, you can ask the examiner to repeat a question, but he/she is not allowed to explain what the question means. In part 2, the examiner will not help you. In part 3, you can ask him/her to explain the question in a different way.
8.IDP和 British Council有什么区别?
The IELTS exam is the same wherever you take it. IDP, the British Council and Cambridge University work together to make the test.
Every word that you know is copied from somewhere and held in your memory. However, the phrases that examiners don't like are the ones that students learn because they can be used in any essay about any topic. For example, examiners are not impressed by the phrase "this is a controversial issue nowadays". On the other hand, you might have memorised the words "the greenhouse effect", but if you're writing about the environment, it's perfectly fine to use them.
You could use this formula: "Well, I don't really know much about... because..., but I suppose..." In other words, you admit that you don't really know what to say, you explain why, then you invent an answer anyway.
11"Do you agree or disagree?" 和"To what extent do you agree or disagree?"有区别吗？
Not really. I would just answer both questions in the same way.
You get one third of the score for task 1, and two thirds for task 2.
The listening test does; section 1 is easy and section 4 is the most difficult. However, the same is not true of the reading test; sometimes the first section is the hardest.
14.雅思考官讨厌"Nowadays... is a controversial issue"这种模板句吗？
Examiners don't hate these phrases, but they don't love them either! It's fine to use a few memorised phrases, but don't fill your essay with them and don't expect them to get you a high score.
I find that the best way to help my students is by using relevant articles or online videos. I try to find good texts, and I pull out the useful language. My ebook is a good shortcut for self-study, but extensive reading and listening is the key to building students' vocabulary knowledge.
16.雅思口语 "describe a person" 的话题我可以说我自己吗？
No. This question always asks you to describe someone else. You'll lose marks if you describe yourself.
Probably not.It's important tobe realisticabout the time it takes to improve your ability to speak, write or understand a second language. It's a reallydifficult task. There is no magicrecipe for successand there areno shortcuts.Take your time, work hard and be patient.
Yes, I often do. I think it's fine to assume that the top of a map is north.
No. I've tried predicting before, but it's a lottery! I wouldn't believe any predictions you read on the Internet if I were you. Just make sure you are prepared for the most common topics, like education, family, work...
that's fine. Just focus on speaking clearly.
21.如果问题问的是 "Is this a positive of negative development?", 我应该正反两面都写吗？
It's your choice. You can take a strong view and argue that the development is 100% positive (or negative), or you can take a balanced view and give the positives and negatives. If you do discuss both sides, it might be best if you make an overall decision e.g. "In spite of the negative effects of..., I believe that it is a positive development overall."
Sometimes, yes. But don't write things like "the number was increased". When describing numbers, just write "the number of... increased". I'll say a bit more about this question in tomorrow's lesson.
